LEARN TANGO IN BUENOS AIRES…RIGHT HERE IN LOS ANGELES!
The TANGO IMMERSION PROGRAM at IDA HOLLYWOOD

Downtown Dance & Movement and A Puro Tango are bringing Buenos Aires to you! Our unique Tango Immersion Program—the first of its kind in the U.S.—will bring some of the best tango maestros in the world for eight-week residencies. Instead of cramming several weeks of material into a few weekend workshops, you will get EIGHT WEEKS of in-depth instruction, learning from these highly respected teachers the way you would if you attended their regular classes in Buenos Aires. This is a results-oriented program, designed to produce real, measurable improvement in your dancing. GO FOR IT!

THREE UNIQUE INSTRUCTIONAL TRACKS WITH A STRONG FOCUS ON TECHNIQUE (All classes conducted in English):

SOCIAL TANGO LEVELS 1 & 2: for new beginners and “advanced beginners.” No partner required; drop-ins allowed, space permitting. You will learn the basics of walking, pivoting, ochos, turns, tango rhythms, navigation and codigos of the milongas.

SOCIAL TANGO LEVELS 3 & 4: for experienced intermediate and advanced dancers. No partner required; drop-ins allowed, space permitting. You will work with the different types of embraces, single and double axis turns, off-axis and spiral movements, adornos, a deeper examination of tango rhythms and musicality, improvisation and deepening the connection between the partners.

PERFORMANCE & COMPETITION TANGO: for experienced intermediate and advanced dancers. Partner required. No drop-ins. You will develop a choreography and it will be critiqued and polished by the maestros. You will work in a weekly, 2-hour group class as well as eight private lessons. Additional private lessons available for an additional charge. Want to compete? Learn from the champions!

THE INSTRUCTORS: (Spring and Summer)
March 9 – May 4: Facundo De La Cruz & Paola Sanz
Facundo De La Cruz & Paola Sanz won the title of World Champions of Tango Salon at the 10th World Tango Championship in Buenos Aires on August 12, 2012. They are talented representatives of a generation of young dancers who are dedicated to the art and tradition of salon tango. Hailing from the provinces of Cordoba and Chubut, they have honed their dance for more than 11 years, five of which have been together. Their independent exploration of the essence of tango salon, elegance, connection, and musicality has allowed them to create a dance that is unique, yet traditional. They are currently teaching in Buenos Aires and all over the world. Facundo is known for his crisp enrosques and sharp syncopations, and Paola for her power, connection and her subtle and elegant footwork.
